Happy Groundhogs Day!
I made this vintage magnet that looks awesome next to the knitted butterfly magnet that my Great Grandma made.

Here's how I made it:
*I printed the vintage saying that I liked (One my brother put on a myspace message for me.)
*Then I covered it in clear nail polish to make it "water proof"
*After the nail polished dried I put cell phone decor rhinestones on it.
*Then I cut it out
*Then adhered the picture to my magnetic.



Here's the close up



Please let me know what you think. Thanks!

very nice magnet Smiley I like how you added the rhinestones.
I often make my own magnets too there's so many things you can do!!
I wonder though, do you recycle old magnets? or was this a bought strip that you cut it out from? Just curious how other people might do this Smiley
